The , DAB Tx maps seem to be out of sync, no where near their actually location , or the map defaults to the mid South Atlantic!

Two observations. There are no maps for the Suffolk Multiplex which has been running now for several months and secondly on the Norfolk Multiplex map it lists Mendlesham as a transmitter. Can someone tell me this is correct ? I don't think so but please prove me wrong.

When my Denon radio is tuned to 11A it says the frequency is 216.928. This web site says the frequency is 211.648 ?

As far as I can see on the map there aren't any transmitters anywhere.
I've tried enlarging the map but still can't see anything. Maybe it's just me?
